Before starting construction and excavation, the area must first be cleared of any hazard. This calls for the task of probing to find out if there are buried pipelines and to check the conditions of the soil. By driving a soil probe into the ground and withdrawing it, professionals can then collect the sample of the soil on the probe’s tip.
However, not all probes can get the job done as efficiently and safely as the ones that are available here on Engineer Warehouse. These soil probes are so durable that they can resist breaking and bending. Some models, such as the hammer probes and striking head probes, are specially designed to break through hard soil and frozen layers.
Because of these probes’ tough steel construction and comfortable handles, users can easily penetrate the probes into the ground and pull them back out. To reach deep beneath the ground’s surface, these soil probes come in varying lengths of 36 to 78 inches. Some of them are even insulated against electrical shock so that users can be protected when they accidentally come in contact with energized utility lines. Insulated soil probes have already been tested to 50,000 volts, which goes to show that they are some of the safest probes to use.
